EA & Respawn continue to push Apex pretty hard, the new map seems to have gone down well and they continue to pump out free updates to keep the players entertained. Their latest installment, “Fight or Fright” is a limited-time Halloween collection event, from October 15th to November 5th.
Darkness descends on Kings Canyon in Shadowfall, a warped version of the Apex games hosted by a mysterious figure.
As part of the Shadow Squad, you will lose your ability to use weapons and your legend abilities will be stripped, but in return, you will be given increased movement and jump speed, along with a brutal melee attack. You’ll also have the ability to scale walls and be given unlimited respawns via skydive. The battle rages until there are only ten living Legends left, who must then join forces and make it to an evac ship while the Shadow Squad attempts to stop them at all costs.
This event includes:
- Limited Time Mode: Shadowfall – Experience a warped, dark version of the Apex games hosted by a mysterious figure known as Revenant. Sooner or later, players will end up joining Revenant’s powerful “Shadow Squad” without weapons or legend abilities — but with increased movement and jump speed.
- Themed Content – Complete a variety of challenges to earn exclusive skins, badges and a music pack.
- Limited Premium Cosmetics – Unlock a set of 24 themes, limited-time cosmetics; players can obtain these new in-game cosmetics through direct purchase for Apex Coins, direct unlock with Crafting Metals or random unlock with Event Apex Packs.
- Double XP Weekend – Earn double XP for Top 5 finishes and wins. This bonus will affect both
AccountLevel and Battle Pass progression.
For us, Apex is one of the best, if not the best battle royale games on the market right now. It looks good, it plays well and it’s not too time consuming. We’ll be trying out on the 15th, see you there Champ.
